Ubaldo pitches well in first Cactus start

SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. (AP) - Ubaldo Jimenez showed no ill effects from an infected thumb that pushed back his start a few days, pitching three scoreless innings Monday in the Colorado Rockies' 7-1 loss to the Los Angeles Dodgers.

Jimenez gave up a hit and walked one in his first appearance since Feb. 26.

Dodgers starter Ted Lilly, who had his first start delayed because of the flu, was happy with his 3 1-3 innings in which he allowed a run on three hits. He struck out two and did not walk a batter. Tim Redding pitched three scoreless innings to get the win.

Jerry Sands' three-run shot off Greg Reynolds highlighted a four-run seventh for the Dodgers.
